    Bonnet catch stuck

    Hi, does anyone know how to get the bonnet up on a 2015 Passat B8 when the cables broke? Cant even get the bumper off with the bonnet down.

    Right. Got it on the ramp, bellypan off, managed to reach up and pull the front cable. Then replaced. No grille smashing like vw wanted to do, or removing front ends. Took 30 mins total.

    You need to get the car in the air to do this without damage

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0. Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. Adding your car spec
